The time Johnny Depp kissed me

HE'S one of the world's biggest movie stars. But, in the late 1980s, Johnny Depp was the star of a new TV show called 21 Jump Street.

A feature writer for Cleo magazine, my job was to attend a photo shoot that involved interviewing him and helping him pick out clothes from our stylist.

Even then, the American star with the big, brown eyes and thick brown hair that flopped over his face was Mr Cool.

He smoked, quite a bit, and put the ash in the pocket of the expensive shirt we'd selected for him.

His socks needed a wash too, but his attitude didn't need polishing at all.

This guy had the moves - he was warm, humble, smart and funny.

After the day's shoot we piled into his limousine - he'd offered to give us a ride back to the office - and he kept up that cheeky smile.

He was flirtatious and irreverent. I remember him telling me I had very pretty feet. LOL.

And, when we arrived at our destination, he sprung out and kissed me. I'm not going to tell you where.

Now I see him surrounded by paparazzi, I remember how, that day, it was just him and me, a stylist and a photographer. And a guy who was destined to be a big, big star.
